20 Young Journalists for International Anti-Corruption Conference

Every two years, the hosts of the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) invite young journalists working all around the world to be part of the next edition of the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) which will be held in Tunis, Tunisia from 21-24 October 2014.

Up to 20 Young Journalists will be selected and will work together, under the guidance of the IACC’s Social Media Unit to report on the Conference sessions through various Social Media and New Media channels, these include the IACC blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Vimeo pages. The selected journalists will also have the opportunity to submit stories to their own news outlets, write monthly blogs/articles for the IACC website and have a chance to engage with Transparency International’s national chapters in their respective countries. Possibly the best part of this amazing initiative is that the selected YJs will become part of an amazing IACC YJ Network which includes some of the greatest young journalists of our time.

What you’ll receive
If you’re chosen, you will be invited to report on the 16th IACC in  Tunisia. You’ll receive a pre-conference training session with us, a round-trip economy travel ticket to Tunis, refund for any visa costs, accommodation for five nights, airport transfers, meals, and the opportunity to learn more about corruption at a global scale and meet key players in this important field. In addition you will become a member of the network of IACC Young Journalists – an amazing group of your professionals which was initiated at the 2010 IACC in Bangkok and 2012 in Brasilia.. You will be responsible for your own travel insurance.
